Replace your old dentures

Why should I replace my dentures?

  • I wear a full denture which you don’t like to wear
  • They feel loose when you are talking or eating
  • They irritate your gums because they are always moving
  • I lack of confidence when i’m wearing it
  • It causes discomfort or embarrassment in social situations

If the answer to one of these questions is yes, the good news is that there is a straight forward and predictable way to solve these problems. There are no age limits, if you are fit for other dental treatment and in good health.

How dental implants can help you

Why Dental Implants could be an option?

There are two ways dental implants can help:

  • A small number of dental implants can be used to support a denture
  • A larger number of implants can be used to replace a denture by supporting teeth that are permanently fixed in place.

Both methods will provide a life changing difference.

Types of Dentures

Bottom denture

As few as two implants can be used to secure a denture in place.

The vast majority of people who struggle with lower dentures and are suitable candidates. Implant treatment for bottom dentures is partially covered by health insurers.

Top denture

At least four implants are required to secure a denture in place. Many who struggle with upper dentures are suitable candidates. We can design a denture that doesn’t cover the roof of your mouth.

Replacing dentures with fixed teeth

For patients where it is possible to use a larger number of implants, you can say goodbye to dentures and have teeth permanently fixed to the implants.

In most cases six implants are needed in the bottom jaw and eight implants in the top jaw to replace your dentures with fixed teeth.

  • The teeth are permanently fixed to the implants, so you won’t need to take them in and out to clean them.
